How do i replace the door handle on a 1998 gmc suburban

remove the inside door trim to gain access to the inside of the door, there may be plastic covering the large openings in the back of the door panel, you have to remove that as well to gain access to the rear of the door handle.
there will be a couple of nuts or bolts that you have to remove and also a metal rod which connects to the handle, once these are removed you should be able to remove the handle from the door

Replace window motor for passenger door, how do i get door handle and lock disconnected from panel? is there a direction sheet for step by step


Replacing the window motor is a simple task. The door handle is connected to the latch thru a wire rod, to remove it, slide the plastic clip away from rod and disengage rod. For the door lock, just pull the panel upward over the lock.

Note: before removing window motor, roll window all the way up and hold it w/clear or duct tape, this will make your job easier.

Installing driver side interior door handle

pull the inner panel off by first un screwing the two screws located on the handle portion of the panel(they may have plastic hadeaway covers over the heads) then remove the window rolldown handle(if so equipped,manual window)then pull the plastic trangle from the inner of the mirror(this little tri angle keeps the trim down and secure on the door. then pull the palnel directly out there are small clasp pins in behind the panel try not to break these(but they do sell replacements at your local auto store) you will have to get ALL of these free then wiggle the panel up releasing it from the inner shell of the door and and window. you should now have a clean view of the handle. you will now need to droll out the rivit holding the handle to the inner steel of the door. pull the handle forward and it should be released from the inner steel now there clips holding the "rods" to the handles back side, they should have a little piece clipped to the rodto un clip these you need only push them off with your thumb. then replace handle with the new one, and uce a large steel screw to secure the handle when replacing back on door.

I have a 1998 Sierra 1500 Pickup. How do take the door panel off.

DO you have power windows or manual. If you have standard cranks then you have to remove the clip holding it to the mechanism inside. if not then there are several screws in the door panel itself. remove all of them. Pry out the bottom of the door there are plastic buttons that should stay with the panel. then lift the door panel straight up the top is hooked inside the window trim. its stiff. but it comes out. The buttons are reusable.

1989 GMC Sierra truck doors loose

Hey there.You can purchase a door pin and bushing repair kit to tighten up the hinge area,requires removing the door to replace.If the hinge area is worn to badly,the brass bushings willnot last.Also your window crank handle is held on by a C-clip behind the handle in between the plastic shim and the handle which requires a special tool to remove or a small screwdriver to get the clip off.It is hard to see.The shaft that the handle is on are known to wear also and if thats the case you will need to have the window regulator replaced.Hope this helps.John.

It helps to have a flat pry tool to get the door panel off but, other than that it's not too hard. Autozone has a tool in the help section that is made to work with those and they have the replacement push clips that always seem to break.

How do you repair a gmc sierra 1998 inside door handle

You have to remove the door panel, if you have roll down windows the handle will have to be removed. After panel is removed you have to drill the one rivet that hols the interior handle. slide the handle down and unfasten the rod retaining clip. Please make sure you do not break the clip. Install the new interior door handle, clip and provided fasteners. Try the door before you install the interior door panel, Note the is a good time to lube the window roller and the door mechanism. Make sure to install the water shield to provide the protecting from the elements. Line all the plastic retaining clips and or replace if they are broken. Good Luck.
